March 1, 2013 Ribbon Cutting at Hayden Building a Success
Thursday, January 28th was a big day for HBI. After twenty years, the new design for the Hayden Building, H.H. Richardson’s last surviving commercial building in Boston, was unveiled. The Ribbon Cutting was a celebration of Boston architecture, preservation, and the Chinatown neighborhood that the building resides in. It was all kicked off with a ceremonial blessing by local Chinese Lion Dancers, and proceeded into a speaking program, which featured Mayor Thomas Menino, local developer and leading donor, Ronald Druker, HBI Executive Director, Kathy Kottaridis and HBI Board President, Matthew Kiefer.
